    Good Luck mate applaud your adventurers spirit. German Bakery though here in Udon for us,much easier.Can freeze it as well if you buy a few loaves.

    Bread baking machine is not adventurous. Making one in the oven may be, slightly.

    Rye bread? That is what I call a place to live.

    Yes but don't simply defrost, they come out as new when you really heat them up.

    90% thats for damn sure. A great old trick. When I buy sourdough at Tops I get 3 or 4 and do the same.

    Does a bread making machine bake the bread also? or Must you bake it in an oven?

    I don't know anything about bread making machines but I would like to learn. Which is the best to buy here in Thailand?

    Go to Tesco and buy some.

    Yeast I mean. And to be sure there is nothing wrong with the machine buy a pack of premixed bread mix if available. That should definitely work.

    I cannot think of any reason besides the yeast may be spoiled by heat and humidity.

    If the relation between flour and water is correct and the yeast is not dead it should definitely rise.

    Yep, I'm the guru when it comes to making bread in a machine.

    You've foked up mate.

    If the bread ain't rising you have either used not enough yeast or you've used too much water or not enough water or you have added hot water to the mix instead of luke warm water.

    Another reason could be the yeast is old or the wrong yeast used.

    Considering you have used a packet mix your problem is yeast related or water related.

    Get it sorted and try again, if all the elements are not spot on you will never make a good loaf of bread.

    Once you sort it you wont go back to the shop again and buy bread.

    Good luck with it.

    Here is the correct mix.

    500 grams of bread mix.

    7 grams of yeast.

    310 Ml of luke warm water.


    This mix gives you a standard sized loaf.

    Don't deviate from this mix, if you do you can throw the whole lot down the shitter.

    If you can't stop eating it, follow Terry's last piece of advice

    You sound as useless as me in the kitchen, I've just sussed out how to use a washing machine after all these years

    But I do know bread comes from dough,

    Get down to Au bon Pain give them dough and they will give you the bread. Simples
